Tree of Life suncatcher, garden art, made from entirely recycled products.
The copper wire wrapped windswept tree is made using reclaimed bare copper electrical cable and the disc is a deep plum tinted spectacle lens. The full size optician lens didn’t pass the muster for being made into spectacles, and so I repurposed it into these charming suncatcher rather than it being put through the recycling process, much more eco-friendly. Once the wrapping is complete I oxidize the copper with liver of sulphur to add patina and hand polish with wire wool and polishing cloth.
This item is not suitable for children as the wire ends can be quite sharp and will need careful handling.
Perfect gift for the nature lover.
